are 6CA7 tubes compatible with 6SN7 sockets?

post #1 of 5

Just a quick question about 6CA7 tubes as I've come across a great deal for a pair of 6CA7 Psvane TII Mk II that I would like to use on my MPX3 (6sn7 sockets).

No! They are completely different tubes.

Ok thanks! So there is no adapter that would let me use them?

The 6CA7 (or EL34) is not a replacement for the 6SN7GT whatever way you look at it. One is a beam power tetrode (or a power pentode) while the other is a double triode.

I see, thank you!
